From Camp Ephraim Minister of Transportation:
It is a good idea to have a look at this video before traveling if this is your first time arriving to Israel, Our Father's home Country for His people. The previous
Minister of Transportation recommends it:
You may take:
High-Speed Direct Train to Jerusalem: Exit Terminal 3, turn left and walk to the Train Station Gate. You can buy a ticket to Jerusalem from the
electronic Kiosk or the personal Kiosk if there is a person present at the gate. All public transit stops the afternoon of Friday in preparation for Shabbat. The Destination of your train and bus is
Yitzhak Navon station / Central Bus Station, Jerusalem, Israel. About 20 NIS
Catch A Bus: Turn right when leaving the terminal and walk to the Bus Stop to catch the # 485 bus to Jerusalem. Destination of train and bus is Yitzhak Navon station / Central Bus Station. About 20 NIS.
From Yitzhak Navon station / Central Bus Station, Jerusalemn - to - Peace
From there it's an 8min walk to Peace Forest.
Sherut (shared taxi) from the Airport: Be taken to your final destination directly. The phone number in the "Call now" link on Nesher's web page seems to
work properly in Israel, not sure about from abroad. You should not need to call them to make any reservation going from the airport, but you have that option. Once you step out of the Airport
there are several Sherutim vans going to several different cities yelling and trying to book passengers to fill up their van. Find a Jerusalem Sherut and wait for the driver to find enough passengers
to fill up his van, sometimes for up to an hour or more. Between 65 and 100 NIS and in some cases can be paid in shekels, USD or with a card
Taxi: A taxi from the Airport to the Peace Forest will be something like 300NIS.
Some taxi drivers may tell you there is no train or no bus to convince you to hire them instead. Except for the various Shabbatim, there will be train or
bus options, and if you must travel on Shabbat or a High Day then a Sherut should be available, but this will leave you buying and selling on a Shabbat which there is never any excuse for a Torah
Keeper to be doing, we know better than to make such a fatal error in our relationship with Elohim. Yah will always make a way that does not require sin if you are faithful and diligent in your love
for Him. A taxi would be good if you require more privacy than a shared Sherut will provide.
Welcome Committee: Look for the sign, likely beyond the baggage claim, and beyond the immigration check, out in the Arrivals Lobby, just before being
outside where the trains and taxis are. We will escort you from there using the Train method as mentioned above! We look forward to welcoming you to Israel!
This Is Important For All Welcome Committee Users:
Please let other travelers know when you are arriving so that arrangements might be made. This is important!
We desire to help but we will be helping efficiently and in a well planned and organized way. Communicate early, what time you will be arriving. Fill out the
Arrivals Sheet Here with your infos to ensure your travel from the Airport to Camp is a smooth one for you. If you
have trouble with the sheet, contact the Arrivals Minister directly. Once you have filled out the sheet, the Arrivals Minister should
contact you with more information to welcome you Home to Israel!
Lastly, the only way our Camp operates is through volunteering. It is vital that everyone lends a helping hand. Find the Volunteer Sheet and in no more than 2
spots per day, fill in where you can lend a hand, now, before you begin your travels. God bless the work of your hands, and safe, smooth, and uplifting travels to you!
